Hello,

I have had a practice in the past that I've been considering taking up again where as soon as I awake in the morning, before even getting out of bed, I write down everything that I can remember about my dreams from the night before. Now I'm reading through the book Beyond Death and at the end of the chapter named Astral Voyages it states that we should not recount our astral experiences (dreams) to others.

Firstly, why should we not recount these experiences to other people?

Secondly, does this extend to keeping a journal of our astral experiences since someone could pick it up and read them?

Thank you

Talking too much about our experiences, especially with people who don't know anything about gnosis, could create confusion, friction, conflict, misunderstandings, and even persecution.

Sharing our experiences with people can often stem from mystical pride, not from the humility of wanting to help others in the context of a lecture or teaching.

I have many dream journals I've kept over the years. I do not share them with anyone.

For thirty years I sought God. But when I looked carefully I found that in reality God was the seeker and I the sought. -Bayazid al-Bastami
